World Communion Sunday October 7 

September 24, 2018

Gifts to October 7, 2018 World Wide Communion Sunday Special Offering will be divided evenly between Neighbors In Need and Plymouth UCC Scholarship Fund.

Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. One-third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM). Two-thirds of this offering is used by the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries (JWM) to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects through grants. Neighbors in Need grants are awarded to UCC churches and organizations doing justice work in their communities. These grants fund projects whose work ranges from direct service to community organizing and advocacy to address systemic injustice. This year, special consideration will be given to projects focusing on serving our immigrant neighbors and communities.

The amount given out in scholarships has tripled over the last four years.  Your gifts to Plymouth UCC Scholarship Fund enables members and friends in financial hardship take part in the numerous opportunities offering by and through Plymouth UCC!
